TEXARKANA, AR - The Texarkana Police Department (TPD) has released new details on a Tuesday afternoon shooting incident that left one man dead.

The man whose body was found inside a home in the 2800 block of Locust St. is identified as DeMarquis Reeves, 25.

While investigating the incident, police say a second 911 call reporting a shooting victim dispatched officers to a home on Ashley St. on the Texas side of the city.

Police soon determined that White had been injured at the scene on Locust St. and that a third man had also been shot there. He is identified as Anthony King, 21. Police say he showed up at a local hospital a few hours after the incident. There are no further details on his condition.
